Unborn Dreams - Poem by Manukrishnan thulaseedharan

I dreamed about life
that waited for me.
I dreamed about freedom
from this dark red world.

I dreamed about trees, birds and seas
that waited for me.
I dreamed about the friends, lover and kin
that waited for me.

I dreamed about the days
when he will hold me.
I dreamed about the nights
when she will kiss me.

I dreamed about school,
home and mother.
I dreamed about love,
life and flower.

I dreamed about seeing
my mother's face.
I dreamed about feeling
my father's love.

I dreamed about sleeping
on my father's chest.
I dreamed about hearing
endless stories.

I was in a hurry to come to this world.
But all of it was lost in my father's words.

I don't want this child
for heaven's sake.
We are too young to
have a child.

She cried and cried
for endless days.
But my fate was in my father's hands.

She may have lost
her unborn child.
But what i lost
was my unborn dreams.
